auroramachine asked: Mr. Chris Pratt, you are the 3rd Chris that Marvel has collected so far. Do you think there is something special in your name or it’s just Marvel has a Chris fetish? 
Chris Pratt: There’s definitely something special about my name. I’m joining pretty amazing company. Both of those guys are really incredible. I haven’t had a chance to meet Hemsworth yet, but Chris Evans… when I saw him, he literally ran across the room, gave me a huge bear hug, lifted me up, and was like, “Dude, you are going to love this!” It was like my brother congratulating me for like making the team. It was pretty cool. We bro’d out. There was a lot of love there… He’s a great guy. The point is, there’s something special about my name. You want your son to be successful? Name him Chris.

Fan art of fan art!

With all the Sailor Moon buzz, a bunch of great fan art has been popping up everywhere, but a couple of my favourites are easily Benjamin Anders’s wonderful redesigns, and W. Scott Forbes’s breathtaking illustration featuring these designs. They’re absolutely stunning and I really wanted to try my hand at these (as I personally have zero fashion design skills).

Make sure you check out the originals! This was a ton of fun. And 8 y.o. me would be SO PROUD.

Oh man! Ricardo Bessa did some fanart of my Sailor Moon redesigns! Great job man!

My finished Captain Eo costume

My friend Bryan made a Captain Eo costume years back out of a white jacket and tic-tac boxes that he painted with Sharpie.  It was easily recognizable as Captain Eo, but he always wanted an upgraded one.  Several years back, there was a full scale picture of Captain Eo at Disneyland where I got a good look at the costume.  Bryan once more lamented about how much he wanted a better, accurate costume, and I for some reason blurted out “I could totally make that.” 

Shortly after, I began the mockup of the jacket.  Using the only pattern that was ever used on this jacket (Simplicity Suedesays pattern 1947), I whipped out a rough version of the jacket.  It was insane; there was so much topstitching, odd seams, and just randomness.  However, it also sparked a fever inside my brain that kept telling me “if you can make this, it will look AMAZING.” 

Bryan and I scoured the LA Fabric District in September of 2013 for a white poly-cotton blend that had just the right amount of sheen without being too heavy.  I then got distracted with sewing my niece’s Halloween costume and work got crazy, so sewing the costume didn’t actually start until late April/early May of this year.  The costume was finished the Saturday before Comic-Con. 

I was terrified that Bryan was going to roast; this costume is HOT. 

The jacket has 3 layers: the poly-cotton outer layer, a layer of muslin to support all the top-stitching, and a light cotton lining. 


(ALL the topstitching!)



(Look at all that detailing that no one took photos of!  :-( )

The pants are worse: 

The bottom layer is a pair of Nike golf pants, then there are 3-5 layers of the poly/cotton, batting, and cording.  Not to mention over 200 metal rivets and studs.  (and a murse.  I had to make him a murse). 

I can’t take all the credit on this:  Bryan and his friend Mal did all of the resin/acrylic and light work: all of the light boxes, shoulder rods, and all the pieces on the belt.  He was an absolute trooper and had to make 3 trips all the way day to San Diego (as he lives 3 hours away) for fittings and costume piece pickups and deliveries. 

Even these photos (including the higher rez version of that photo) don’t show the insane amount of detail on this costume. 

The costume was a HUGE success at the Con (which I’m flattered about), but I’ve already gotten bombarded by people asking me to make one.  This unfortunately was a one-time-only vanity project for my best friend, I’m sorry to say.  We set out to make the insane costume and we did it.  :-D  :-D 

My crazy-awesome friend Rachel, everyone.

I LOVE THIS!

I never stop being amazed by what incredible work that Rachel does!

I WANT IT.  I WANT TO EAT ALL THE STEAK IN THESE PICTURES.  ALL OF IT.
